° Interviewing Methods: Preparation, controlling the setting, the sequence of obtaining a complete account, recognizing sensory perceptions, analyzing witness body language, active listening, interpreting the oral account, and drawing conclusions are all vitally important.
° Collateral Contacts: In a given circumstance, the Trainee must be aware of which public officials and/or others to contact in order to potentially resolve the report as a misperception, determine the person's reliability as a witness, or identify others who may have witnessed and reported the same event.
° Technical Background: A working knowledge should be conveyed to the Trainee on the subjects of photographic equipment and methods, all equipment used by CMPS.
In addition , CMPS will conduct a background check on all FI Applicants. If CMPS determines the background check is not acceptable to CMPS, the Field Investigator designation will not be issued to the applicant.
